The same poll in June showed that 56% of all Republicans said they thought Saddam was involved with the 9/11 attacks. In the latest poll that number actually climbs, to 62%.
What it comes down to is, if you believe that Iraq was behind 9/11 then you want to vote for Bush, and if you do not, you do not want to vote for Bush. That’s what it comes down to.
I think THIS is where Edwards hit hard at the start of the debate, and it is very, very important. And he repeated it. I don’t see how ANYONE can come away from that without questioning their belief that Iraq was behind 9/11.
